I believe our stories have power. My passion is utilizing all forms of media as a way to inspire, engage, enroll, teach and surprise. Media at its best conveys how remarkable the human spirit is. Good storytelling can transform us by creating connection, empathy, understanding, insight…and then ultimately open us up to being changed.
If you were to meet me, you’d quickly find that I have a quick-witted sense of humor, blow-the-lid-off creativity, sky’s-the-limit thinking, and anythings-possible perspectives. I’m energized by collaborative work and am jazzed by instilling the process with laughter, playfulness, passion, imagination and fun. I have a strong thread of fearlessness that runs through me. I love the danger of trying out something new (so what if it fails!), and of suggesting different ways to instill the “same old, same old” with life and energy in order to create a product that’s fresh and compelling.
I’m a personal/executive coach with years of experience training professionals in the art of incorporating creativity and innovation into their everyday business lives. For the past 20 years, I’ve worked nationally and internationally in professional radio and television production. Besides that, I’m a published author, a motivational speaker, and an improvisational comedian.

I see myself as having an unwavering passion for excellence. I have a sharp instinct that helps me detect and hone those qualities that are highest, best, and most brilliant in both people and in organizations. I love the challenge of exploring areas of growth that seem unreachable–goals that most would consider unattainable, or even unthinkable.
Bottom line–I will “hold” a person, concept, business or project to its ultimate greatness. To me, it’s thrilling to see someone step into and claim his/her absolute potential–that process simply takes my breath away! I’m a consummate encourager and will continually stand by the resolute belief that we can do more, be more, become more–and all the while truly enjoying the process.
People tell me I’m a paradox and it’s true. I’m off-the-wall zany, wacky, and quite mischievous–and yet there’s also a part of me that processes life with philosophical depth and meaning. Guess it’s this duality that gifts me with such richness and inspiration.
I’ve spent the past 20 years in media production and performance. I was the producer of a radio broadcast that aired on over 500 stations throughout North America. I then landed the job as co-host of the national award-winning television show “You Need To Know”. One of my favorite things to do is to perform improvisation–whether with friends or in front of an audience of 1,500. There’s just nothing quite as satisfying as getting people to laugh so hard they can barely breath!
I’m rock solid, with a flair for adventure and fun! I’m your belay team…you’ll always know I’ve got your back, holding you fully capable of stretching for–and reaching–your greatest potential! Those of you who know me speak of my contagious enthusiasm for new ideas, exploring opportunities, and my belief in living a purposeful life you create for yourself. I have a thirst for learning, growing and expanding, personally and professionally. Whether hot air ballooning, rock climbing, going back to school to finish a degree at 46, or leaving a solid career to start my own business…I’m most alive when pushing limits and seeing what I’m made of! It gives me goose bumps to be part of that process with others!
Leading with integrity is my strong suit. I truly believe it’s possible to connect to and lead from that place within each of us. I’m a creative collaborator, a team and bridge builder, nurturing business and technical talent. I meet you in your corporate world and show you how to bring your human, down-to-earth self along with you, creating your own authentic style. Got a troubled project or team in need of wrangling? I’m your woman! We’ll work together to pull things apart, shake them up, sort them out, and put them back together again…sometimes in practical ways, sometimes with a twist that turns things completely upside down for a new perspective! I’m a certified Project Management Professional, and a certified Personal/Success Coach in the Boston area, providing coaching and mentoring to Project Management and Business Analyst professionals.
I lead a global business unit for IBM. You’ll find me traversing the globe working to help people succeed. Whether I’m in Asia, Europe or North America, I’m working with those seeking to discover their pivotal growth edge. Along with a graduate business degree, I’m a graduate of The Coaches Training Institute’s Coaching and Leadership programs.
I provide leadership coaching and consulting in Vancouver, British Columbia to corporate clients including Royal Bank of Canada, Right Management Consultants, City of Vancouver, Chevron Canada Ltd., and Nexen Chemicals Ltd. I’m also an insightful, leadership coach, an impeccable cummunicator, and someone who demands your greatness. I provide work/life coaching to a lively group of business professionals.
I’m a strategy guy in the commercial construction industry. This serves my need to make a difference and help my clients grow their businesses and make them more profitable. It’s a great gig, which serves many purposes; allowing me to tap into my creative side, offer value for clients and make the world a better place. Some of the clients I’ve worked with over the years have been CVS Pharmacies, Lexus, Marriot, JCPenney, and HCS.
